The week of September 25th was a busy one for the Chorus. On Wednesday 27th we entertained Doug and his friends from Loughton, Essex, on their annual trip. 40 or so people packed the dining room at the Dower House hotel for the evening and they turned out to be a fun=living bunch who really enjoyed singing themselves as well as listening to the chorus. 

On Friday we gave a full concert to the Hampsthwaite Village Society in their Memorial Hall. The chorus performed the full repertoire, and also included a few speciality spots by the Misspent Ukes, a monologue by Harold Blackburn, a comedy song by Ian McNeil and a quartet performance of Birth of the Blues. 

Saturday 30th was the Big Sing! We got together with 3 other small local choruses (Daytones from Clifford, Northern Acchord from Teesside and White Rose from Leeds/Bradford) for a day of professional coaching and learning the popular song "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" from the musical The Lion King. 

Musical director Peter Bryant took a video of the final performance which you can see by clicking the image below.
